Cottage Health 2019 Culture Audit

Adolfa Galvan – Environmental Services/ Representative – 40 Years Adolfa Galván has worked for Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in the Environmental Services Department for 40 years. Those who have the honor of knowing Adolfa describe her as kind, caring and having an uncompromising work ethic. They love how she greets them with a warm smile and sometimes with delicious homemade food or pictures of her children and grandchildren. In addition to her job duties, Adolfa has the remarkable gift of making people feel a little better. Originally from Guanajuato, Mexico, Adolfa moved to Santa Barbara when she was 18 years old and where, as one of her daughters describes her mother’s amazing story, she accomplished the American Dream. Adolfa and her loving husband, Nicolás Galván, became United States citizens and raised three beautiful daughters: Rosa Galván Gutierrez, a medical historian; Dr. Adriana Galván, a tenured neuroscience professor at UCLA; and Brenda Galván, a Deputy District Attorney at the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. Adolfa has made lifelong friends in Santa Barbara and at Cottage Health. She extends her heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for the recognition given to her and for making her time at Cottage Health as wonderful as it has been. Cottage Health wishes to thank Adolfa Galvan for 40 years of loyal and dedicated service. Richard “Rick” Donovan – Imaging Services/Director – 40 Years Rick joined the Radiology Department in 1977 after completing the radiology program at Santa Barbara City College. He received numerous promotions over the years and was named Chief Radiologic Technologist in 1989 where he oversaw Interventional Radiology, Cardiac Cath Lab, CT, Ultrasound and Endoscopy. He was also the System Manager for the Radiology Information System and continued to participate in catheterization procedures. He also participated in the first coronary angioplasty procedure performed at SBCH. In 1992, Rick was promoted to the newly created position of Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab where he was responsible for the Cath Lab, Electrophysiology Lab, Non-invasive Cardiology and Neurodiagnostics. In 2000, Rick was promoted to the position he holds today, Director of Imaging Services, combining the management of all of radiology and cardiology under one position. Rick moved to Santa Barbara from Massachusetts with his family in 1959 when his father took a position at Raytheon. He has one brother and two sisters and his 95-year-old mother lives in the same house on the Mesa where he grew up. His mother still enjoys her Wednesday evening outings to Harry’s for dinner with the family. Rick and his wife Alice have been married nearly 37 years and they have two children. His daughter Shannon lives in Santa Barbara with her husband Ted. She followed in her dad’s footsteps and is a CT and MRI tech at Pueblo Radiology across the street from the hospital. His son, Bill, works in the IT field and recently relocated to Denver with his wife Lacey. When not working, one of Rick’s favorite things to do is to travel to Mammoth Lakes with his family to ski, hike or just enjoy the beautiful scenery. Thank you, Rick, for your 40 years of dedicated service. 62/94 Start | Contents | Highlights | General Information | Hiring & Welcoming | Inspiring | Speaking | Listening | Thanking | Developing | Caring | Celebrating | Sharing • Thanking 6.29
